Both teams in action on Tuesday continued their conference tournament runs, one thanks directly to a PDL Player to Watch.
In NAIA play, Oklahoma Wesleyan dispatched Kansas Wesleyan in the KCAC Tournament Semifinals with a narrow 1-0 victory. The match remained level deep into the second half, with neither team able to find a goal. Then, in the 83rd minute, Ocean City Nor'easters forward Alexander Simovic played the hero for the Eagles, finding the game-winner that propels OKWU into the Conference Tournament Final.
Elsewhere, in NCAA DI, Holy Cross also managed to proceed in the Patriot League Conference Tournament, earning a comprehensive 3-0 win over Lehigh, its second win over that opposition in two matches. Long Island Rough Riders midfielder Justin Carfora didn't manage to find the score-sheet, but still put in a strong 80 minutes of action in the win.
